why would this tech even exist?

Another reason is that it's a problem/question that is almost ideally suited to machine learning. Machine learning is generally pretty good at classification problems based upon visual input. If you're a researcher experimenting with a new deep learning model, you'd want to choose a problem that you think you have a reasonable chance of actually being able to train the model to solve. And if that problem has some semi-interesting social/human implications -- i.e. that there are some facial signifiers of sexuality that are mostly invisible to humans but perceptible to a statistical model -- then all the better. It did after all get the researchers some mainstream press coverage.

all humans are attracted to penis, that's why people go through such great efforts to hide them

Sounds like you're living life on the down low... Does your wife know you're gay?

The following test was developed by a combination of top U.S. and European
psychologists. The results are extremely accurate in describing your
personality with one simple question.

Which is your favourite Teletubbie:

A. Yellow
B. Purple
C. Green
D. Red

DECIDE BEFORE SCROLLING DOWN










Profile for women...

A. If you chose the Yellow Teletubbie. You are bubbly and cheerful. People
come to you when troubled because you always make them feel better about
themselves. You are apt to clash with Red Teletubbie people.

B. If you chose the Purple Teletubbie. You are active and erratic. You
have many ideas and set high standards for yourselves and others. Stay
away from Green Teletubbie people, they tend to bring you down.

C. If you chose the Green Teletubbie. You are calm and reliable. Family
plays a major role in your life and you often sacrifice your needs to
please others. Yellow Teletubbie people are a good match for you.

D. If you chose the Red Teletubbie. You are bold and emotional. You are
fierce in your opinions and quick to anger, but stick by your friends
through thick and thin. Purple and Red Teletubbie people are an explosive
combination.


Profile for men.............

A. If you chose the Yellow Teletubbie. You are gay.

B. If you chose the Purple Teletubbie. You are gay

C. If you chose the Green Teletubbie. You are gay.

D. If you chose the Red Teletubbie. You are gay.

There's an easy and fool-proof way to tell if anything related conservative/right-wing/Republican politics is true or not. If anyone calls it "fake news", you can be sure it's the solid truth.

Ok so it was correct 81% and humans were correct 61%.

I guess my question is.... why the fuck does it even matter? And maybe it's just me, but unless we are doing some sort of WW2 high tech jewish internment system of separating the gays from the straights why would this tech even exist?

From the article:

But the authors argued that the technology already exists, and its capabilities are important to expose so that governments and companies can proactively consider privacy risks and the need for safeguards and regulations.

Exactly what you fear is why the researchers are raising awareness of it: to prevent governments and corporations from abusing such technology to create a new kind of apartheid.

Also what Rilcon said.

The researches stated they did it to prove it could be done, and better the information be out in the open (and possibly push towards legislation and accords to limit this) than it be silently developed and used by governments with the nefarious intentions you alluded towards.

If something can be invented, no matter how useless or terrible, someone somewhere will invent it and maybe even build it. At least now it won't come as a surprise to anyone.
